It's been 2 1/2 weeks since stopping it and I'm still having loose stool, not really diarreha but it's still not normal. I just started taking probiotics to replace good bacteria a week ago. HELP!
Hi Chrissy2009. This is a common problem with taking antibiotics. They kill off the good bacteria in the gut. I would suggest you get the probioitc Florastor from you pharmacy. It will help with this problem You need to take it twice a day. You may buy it over the counter. This is the recommendation from my gastroenterologist. Best wishes to you..
Get some Culturelle, better if you get the refrigerated one. Every time I go on antibiotics, my doctor prescribes Culturelle to take with it twice a day, and take ten days worth. You lose valuable bacteria every time you take an antibiotic, and that causes loose stools.
Feel better soon!
I'm taking refrigerated Florajen but didn't start till after I quit taking it, nobody told me too! I'm also thinking there may be yeast. I'm going 4 times a day but mainly in the morning.
What's all your experiences? How long will this last? My doc said to see a gastroenterologist. I think I just need time.
